Hey, help a brother out you honkey ass crackers.


Fuck it. 

I'm begging.

Consider this me rattling my tin cup here, like Eddy Murphys character in Trading Places.

You know, at the beginning of the movie, when he's on that little wheely cart, pretending he's legless.

That's ME you see, with a couple days to go here with the season change dealy.

C'mon man! Lend me some power you white sons of bitches!

I'll go on the record real quick and let you know that full disclosure I'm a really white white guy. 

Like transgressivly white. Blonde hair, blue eyes, the whole deal.

Plus I'm 'cis' gendered, which is basically a way to 'other' 'normal' people.

Put em in a box.

*As a straight white male though I DO recognize myself as the primary cause of society's ills and unlike every other version people come in, I take deep shame in what I was born as. Were I a black lady or a transsexual I could hold my head up high, in bloody defiance of this ridiculous system, where I find myself at the top of a social totem pole through absolutely no virtue of my own.

Good Lord, you should hear me talk my way out of traffic tickets. Not that it's even come up in a decade. I mean, that's not cool. I get that. How much can I enjoy it and how hard can I begrudge it? You know? That's a toughie. I wish everybody could wave down cops and sheepishly ask for directions, I truly do*

Anyway.

..I don't know if that makes it better or worse, my nonsense.. 🤔

Everybody needs to be in boxes you see, it's super important to other people by worrying about their race, sexuality, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, etc.

That's the only way to get rid of sexism and racism and stuff..

I guess... sounds counterintuitive, but whadda I know.

All's I know is today I'm identifying as a black man and any pushback whatsoever literally constitutes 'Mental Illness shaming'.

So, you know. 

Don't be a racist sonofabitch and toss me SOMETHIN.

Anything would help, I just need over the threshold and as a black man, I feel like this splinterlands system is one of oppression.

Hahaha. Don't get mad at me, I'm clearly out of my mind.

Help a brother out though, if you want.

You know you had a hand in slavery or small-pox blanketing Native Americans. 😑

I for one have a rock solid alibi for that terrible shit. ☝

I'll have you know this isn't entirely satire, why, my mom got a 23&me and guess what?

Sure she's a mutt from all the crackeriest places in Europe and the Netherlands, fine. Fair enough.

Turns out she's 1% Pacific Island Asian though.

Boom. 🎤⬇️.

If you're stumbling upon this nonsense and you've not heard of the absolute sensation, the crypto game known as Splinterlands..

Here's my affiliate link thingie.

That let's daddy get his beak wet on you making the best decision ever, insofar as investing in and playing Splinterlands.

I'm obviously an idiot, but I keep making ridiculously sound financial decisions, despite my meager wealth.

I think this is gonna be like getting in on those reserve list Magic The Gathering cards, back when they seemed really expensive at what is now about 1/10th their current going rate.

 

Yes black guys play Magic the Gathering, you racist sonofabitch.

Admittedly not as many as live at home virgin neckbearded fat white blokes or autists. Still.

Homey CAN play MTG. 

Haha, I'll stop. Sorry. 

Race is a construct so racism borders on absurdism to my mind.

So I kinda love casual racism. 😅

What? It's fun.

If you wanna say that I shouldn't find racism funny, just because I'm a Norwegian looking dude who lives in the suburbs..

That's racist.

Right??

I certainly hope so, otherwise I probably sound terrible. 😬

Whatever.

I love everybody.

This is what happens when I drink and blog I guess...

Hey, btw, what the fuck with like a hundred people reading my idiotic manic nonsense then not hitting thumbs up or thumbs down?

Personally I've never thumbs downed a thing unless I was trying to teach the YouTube algorithm they're way off on some perceived interest. I guess the part of my brain that registers 'offense' is completely broken. Ya know? Personally I see offense as a childish and useless emotion. I think I was last offended in High School or shortly afterwards.

Really the main thing people dont like about me is that I probably generally like whatever group or groups they don't.

Yeah, I'm not talking about the tiki torch maniacs or antifa or whatever extremists want their brand of fascism.

I'm a live and let live kinda fellow though. 

As long as you're not hurting or abusing anything or anyone, I probably think you're fine. 🤷‍♂️

Here's a cut paste of my man Stephen Fry from a debate he participated in on free speech:

First to preface*

*"We cannot disagree intelligently until we first understand profoundly." -(Some smart person from history and junk.)*
 -Ok, now the quotes.


"I think all this has got to stop. This rage, resentment, hostility intolerance above all this erm, 'with us or against us' certainty. A Grand canyon has opened up in our world the fissure – the crack grows wider every day. Neither on each side can hear a word that the other shrieks and nor do they want to. While these armies and propagandists in the culture wars clash down below in the enormous space between the two sides, the people of the world tried to get on with their lives alternately baffled, bored and betrayed by the horrible noises and explosions that echo all around. I think it’s time for this toxic, binary, zero-sum madness to stop before we destroy ourselves."

He goes on to later say:

"Naturally, I want racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, bullying, bigotry– intolerance of all human kinds to end. That’s surely a given amongst all of us. The question is how such a golden aim is to be achieved. My ultimate objection to political correctness is not that it combines so much of what I have spent a lifetime loathing and opposing, preaching us (with great respect) Piety, self-righteousness, heresy hunting, denunciation, shaming, assertion without evidence, accusation, inquisition, censoring </span;>
<span;>I wouldn’t trust myself as a classical libertarian, but I do relish transgression and I deeply and instinctively distrust conformity and orthodoxy. Progress is not achieved by preachers and guardians of morality but to paraphrase Yevgeny Zamyatin “…by madmen, hermits, heretics, dreamers, rebels and skeptics."
-Stephen Fry.

 

Weird one today, I can admit that.

Even if you don't help me, or thumbs up, or comment or anything, God bless you for reading this anyway. 😁

It's not like I'm making anything off this, so as with most things I'm just having fun with it. 

Even if I was making something, fuck it.

As a black man, I feel like I've earned the right to say and do whatever I think is fun. 😎

I can't be canceled anyway.

One of the benefits of living with my mother at 40 years old.

(Hey, sorry if you happen to be uptight and this post had you clutching your pearls about to faint.

Take solace in the fact that none of this matters or try taking deep breaths into a paper bag. 🤷‍♂️)

 

-The rest of you are my kinda folks. 😊

 

Green and blue seem like the 2 best colors btw.

Yeah. I said it.

Here's a couple of screenshots of games where I didn't loose a single dude.

Ain't even fair. 

Just like systemic injustice. 😑

I am a 40 fledgling comedian who lives at home with his mother. Way I see it, We're stuck by an invisible force onto an impossibly verdant sphere, hurtling ever faster through outer space, so.. I try not to take anything too seriously. Go crypto!

Hey folks. 👋 My name is Whitney Haverstock and despite my cruel joke of a name, I'm a dude. Boy named Sue situation. Grade school was rough, but I don't begrudge it. Life's horrors served to slant me towards comedy as a coping mechanism. Meh. I'm having fun with it. What else... 🤔 Oh, I just turned 40. Norm Macdonald died on my birthday..😔 He was more than a personal hero, dude was my spirit animal. Whole reason I started doing stand-up a year or so ago. -right before the plague and subsequent fires.
